Lower Body

Lower Body

 

Your lower body acts as the base of your support as you walk, run and jump. Concentrating only on your upper body when you work out is a mistake. Your largest muscles are located in your lower body. They are essential in movements you perform in day-to-day activities or in sports.

When you strengthen your lower body, you are strengthening your largest muscles.

What if you get thin chicken leg in the biryani? It simple means she had skipped leg day.

No matter how big your upper body is, having small legs will make your physique look odd at the least, if not ridiculous. In bodybuilding contests, judges don't look at muscle mass in one area, they look at your whole body.

Training your legs, particularly with multi-joint compound exercises, burns a higher number of calories than easier upper-body moves such as biceps curls or lateral raises. This leads to increased fat loss, which is also partly caused by the release of hormones you get when training legs.

The major muscles of your lower body are the gluteal muscles or the buttock muscles, which move your upper leg to the side or back, the hamstrings of the posterior thigh, which lift your heels toward your buttocks, the quadriceps of the anterior thigh, which straighten your leg and the calf muscles, which point your feet downward and help you stand on your toes.
